Default For NA Impreza owners, what's your maintenance schedule been like?

Almost at 40K on my Imrpeza. After doing obvious things like oil at 5K, what are some of the things you've done and at what mileage? Driving styles may depend on it, of course, but I'm curious to see so I know if I'm babying the car or doing things right.

Tires @ 25K due to uneven tread wear after a railroad spike replaced just one tire.

CVT fluid flush and replace at 30K.

Pads replaced at 30K, OEM pads had about 25% left. Figured if I had the car on the lift I'd do them now to save time. Rotors are still the same.

I replaced my front and rear diff fluid when I did my first oil change. Both fluids were black.

That may be something you want to consider.

Of course the engine air and cabin air filters too.

Brake fluid?

brakes every 40K for me (book says every 30k or 2 years, but 40k is 1.5yrs for me and my commute is 70% highway) done them twice.

was going to type all this out, but why when a picture will do it for me....

btw: current oil change interval is 13k per change

usually about .7qt per interval up to 1.0qt if i really want to keep it topped off the entire time but once i get over 11K i don't bother.

going to change my oil again soon (next week), a little shorter, maybe 11.5k just because it has been cold and i have been idling some more. next one will go back to 13K

Closing in on 60k. Oil and tire rotations every 6-7k. Replaced tires at around 20k because I disliked the yokos. Did the recommended 30k service, will do the recommended 60k service soon. Short block replaced at 42k on account of the not uncommon oil burning issue. Original brakes still going strong. Wipers every 18 months or so, as necessary.

This is what o recommend. After 50k severe gear starts to get thick and if I run 5mt sticky shifting.
